Life is full of interesting views, and you need a lens that can catch them all. Whether you're shooting wide group photos or portraits, close-ups or landscapes, photos or HD videos, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II delivers the sharpest, most colour-rich results imaginable. Optimized for Nikon's new high-resolution DX-format image sensors, it borrows the ultra-compact retractable lens barrel design from the Nikon 1 system. Nikon's remarkable Vibration Reduction technology provides 4.0 stops* of blur-free handheld shooting—enjoy crisp, clear images even if your hands are a bit unsteady and shoot at slower shutter speeds in low-light situations. No matter where you're headed, grab the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II and rest assured: you'll be able to land fantastic shots.

Great for nearly any situation

Versatile 18–55mm focal length range
There's a reason Nikon includes an 18-55mm lens with so many D-SLR kits—it's simply a fantastic all-around lens. The AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II is the most compact, advanced version of the 18-55mm lens yet. A new retractable barrel design inspired by the Nikon 1 system makes it approx. 25% smaller and lighter than its predecessors, and the latest Vibration Reduction technology provides 4.0* stops of blur-free handheld shooting. Whether you're shooting wide group shots or tight close-ups, photos or HD videos, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II delivers.

Unleash the power of your HD-SLR

Optimized for DX-format cameras
The AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II is optimized to draw maximum performance from Nikon's new generation of high-resolution DX-format HD-SLRs. Nikon's Super Integrated Coating (SIC) ensures outstanding colour richness and contrast by reducing reflections and glare. A seven-blade rounded diaphragm renders backgrounds and out-of-focus elements in your shots with a natural, softly blurred appearance. Your photos and HD videos will reveal the astounding sharpness and detail your HD-SLR is capable of achieving.

Sharper photos and HD videos

The Nikon Vibration Reduction advantage
The AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II features Nikon's latest Vibration Reduction image stabilization technology, which provides 4.0* stops of blur-free handheld shooting. That means your photos and videos will be tack-sharp, even if your hands are a bit unsteady. Additionally, it means you'll be able to shoot at slower shutter speeds without affecting image sharpness—a huge advantage in low light situations where slower shutter speeds mean brighter photos.
